Wow!!! Some great pics there! Good to see a number of real military vehicles in action, too.

One question though, and pardon me for mentioning it. I couldn't help but notice the one table apparently selling what appeared to be de-activated [hopefully] ammunition of various types, as well as what appeared to be fired empties. :?

I thought that these were licensed/controlled items in the RoI under the rules of the Firearms Act and could only be held by the owner of the license to which they were applied. IOW - you, may, as a the license-holder for a .303 L-E, retain the empty cases, but they are counted, in the RoI, as live ammunition.

So how can this table-owner legally sell this stuff? :o

tac, puzzled

Some wonderful photographs here. Please bare in mind it's easy to buy a D/A Lee Enfield etc. However it takes a lot of leg work and expense to find all the small pieces of kit to make the re enactment look correct.

Plus by performing re enactments and living history we see how good the kit is or is not. We learn a lot of things that did not get put in the history books as well.

Ever tried getting a 52lbs Vickers Gun Tripod up the stairs to put it away? Let a lone fight a war with one!

Kind regards, Lester
